Sea shell adventure
Hi guys, Clara and I are on our way for a sea shell art adventure, and we’re off to Port Elizabeth, the Windy City. But we’re going to be at a stunning beach and I can’t wait to share some creative ideas for another sketchbook challenge from this holiday for you guys to do. We’ve just arrived at Kenton-on-sea. We’re so excited.
Finding some sea shells
So this morning Clara and I went out to the beach, and we found a lot of shells. The place we’re staying at also have a lot of shells in the bathroom. So we have decided to use those for this sketchbook challenge. The first thing I want you to do is, I want you to draw three figures, girls in any position you like. I’ve done a few here that I can show you.
You can use a pen or a pencil. It doesn’t matter, you can draw stick figures. I really don’t care as long as you guys are drawing.
Design dresses with the shells
What we’re going to do then is, you’re going to place the girls down, and design your own dresses, using these shells. You can come up with the most amazing things. You could use one type of shell or combine them all together, any way you like.
Here are some examples of some of them that I have done.
Let’s see what Clara has been up to.
Shells in space!
And now, for some of you that’s not really into the dress thing, I was thinking, what about space. Shells in space! That is such a fascinating concept and some of these crazy rocks really made me think of meteorites. So off we went into space.
And there you have it. Some incredible beautiful fashion design and some awesome space adventures. I hope you guys have lots of fun and it’s important to just be creative. If you’re doing a dog, wearing the shell brace, it doesn’t matter, as long as you’ve come up with a great idea that’s uniquely yours. Have fun and please show me what you’ve done and what you’re up to down below in the comments.
